Tribunal Verdict: No Youth Should Be A Tool For Politicians — Ohanaeze

Tribunal Verdict: No Youth Should Be A Tool For Politicians

As citizens eagerly await the verdict of the President Election Petition Court today, Nigerian youths have been advised to resist being used as tools by politicians to cause chaos.

The advice was given by the Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide amid the heightened tension across the country, with the possibility of a nationwide protest should the judgement go against the expectations of Nigerians.

In a statement made available on Tuesday, the Igbo socio-cultural organisation via the National President Youth group, Mazi Okwu Nnabuike, appealed to youths to resist being deceived by desperate politicians.

According to Nnabuike, youths may be recruited as usual to protest the outcome of the judgement.

“We, however, advise youths across the country to resist the temptation; it is only in times like this that politicians remember the youths. Once they get what they want, we are forgotten.

“No youth should make himself a willing tool in the hands of these desperate politicians”, he stated.

Speaking further, Nnabuike reminded citizens that “whatever the outcome is still subject to the final judgement of the Supreme Court.”

“We, however, appeal to security agencies not to harass or maim any Nigerian today; rather, they should secure the lives of citizens”, he added.
